Subject: Fantastic on so many levels!!
There are so many dimensions of sound on this recording you feel you could almost reach out and touch the person next to you.

Subject: This show was a balm
I regret that the Gators lost that Saturday on a crazy play in the final minutes. Bobby's shout-out before Casey Jones was a salve for those smarting from the loss. Thank you, Chris Qualmann, for closing the old Alley with this show.

Subject: My First Show
This was my first GD show and, it was on my 17th birthday to boot! It was the homecoming weekend in Gainesville at the University of Florida (Go Gators) and we won the game as I recall. My mother was in town in her RV camping over by campus and I was visting. She noticed I was a bit antsy and when I told her that this band (GD) was in town playing over at the gym she immediately handed me 20 dollars (it was like $12 to get in or something) and said, go! I sprinted across the campus to the gym getting there about 30 minutes before the show. It was magic--small gym, great crowd (not too crowded, perfect size) and tons of folks in the back dancing away with colored ribbons -- to this day not sure what that was about--acid? But it was great--and Stella Blue was a showstopper for me--I can still remember how I felt when they played that one! I love that I eventually found the show on this site.

This one still sounds the best.

Subject: quit reading this & go listen already...
seriously... this is a damn fine recording, and a smokin' show on top... great presence from Brent's keys... good all around balance, & just enough crowd to put you right there... you'll find nothing else better to listen to in the next 30 minutes of aimless browsing, so just hit play already...

GET IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reviewer: pnc - - August 13, 2008
Subject: Excellent recording...
of a very good show. This sounds more like a matrix; the crowd noise seems only to complement the very full sound. 5 for the recording, 4+ for the show...quality stuff. Shakedown is like disco meets the blues.
